For example configure accepts --target=bfin-rtems4.10 without any
complaint and subsequently builds binaries.
I think that's a known situation
- we don't check the correctness of
the target triplet - often the configure just assumes one of the
bareboard variants but that's highly speculative at best. when you're lucky,
you'll see an error message during the GDB configure, but otherwise,
yeah, GDB will fail at build time.
Note: It did not fail at build-time - Building went absolutely
smoothless -- gdb crashed at run-time!
